Like the Kong from Donkey!
I’m not burying the lead today: OK Cafe, 11:30am meet up, food, friends, fun. So far I have a headcount of five: Barb, Steve, Debbie, John (aka HamWithCam), and yours truly. Anyone else planning to attend please let us know in a comment so that we can save you a seat.
On Pins And Needles
I’m not going to lie to you, yesterday’s weather had me on pins and needles all day long. Hell, it lasted late into the night as I left during Ben Sollee’s encore so that I could avoid getting caught in the late night barrage of rain that rolled through Atlanta around 10:30pm.
The concert last night was fantastic. I’ve seen/heard Sollee perform four times now, each time in a different configuration. Last night it was solo Sollee as he took the the stage with only his cello and mandolin. Opening for Sollee was a fourteen year old, I’ll pause here to let that sit in your brain for a second, young lady from London Kentucky named Madison Parker. With skills and lyrics well beyond her years Parker belted out original songs, and joined Sollee on stage for two of his final tunes.
I’d consider returning for Sollee’s second show tonight, but I have too many other things that need to happen today. Oh, one other thing I heard last night… Hank, who invited me to join him at the Lucky’s in Brookhaven, informed me that he was told that the Lucky’s in Emory has reopened with a limited menu due to the size of the kitchen; as long as they are serving beer I’m happy.
Busy Day In My A
Though I have skipped the trip to LA Fitness that I put into my schedule yesterday, my day is shaping up to be a busy one. In addition to the aforementioned lunch meeting I will be heading to Brookhaven/Chamblee to go to Costco, Lowe’s, and perhaps the final load of laundry that I will do in my favorite Chamblee lavanderia.
With the new gig in midtown and with a renewed interest in riding Marta, it seems incredibly impractical to make the journey to Chamblee just to do my laundry. The lavanderia was conveniently positioned between work and home when I labored near Perimeter Mall and during my hiatus I had all the time in the world so I could make the journey and eat lunch or dinner near there, but now, especially with the I-85 collapse, it no longer makes sense. Sayonara lavanderia.
Let’s get this started!
